Day 11 Give Thanks to the Lord

November 11th:  I hate coming home to a messy house.  You walk in from a day of work and low and behold there’s toast crumbs on the counter-top, dishes in the sink, pet hair on the floor, and someone needs a particular piece of clothing laundered for tomorrow.  All the cleaning you did on Saturday morning isn’t visible and it’s only Wednesday.  It’s so tiring and a constant battle.  Me versus the sinister Mr. Dust-Man.  The chores are endless.  I give thanks to the Lord for a messy house to clean!

The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. – Proverbs 14:1

The picture below of a “grateful” list really sums it up.  It is going up on my fridge tonight.  Make your own “grateful” list and display it in your kitchen for a reminder that the barbecue sauce that is all over your white cabinets is a total blessing to have.

Grateful list

I am truly thankful to have a home and adequate shelter.  On this Veteran’s Day, please remember those veterans who are homeless and pray for them.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 49,933 veterans are homeless on any given night.  If you feel the call to help, please give to a local shelter or food bank.  Feeding America has a great online tool to help you find one:
